10:00pm
until then, i am matt welch and good night. . lou: gd evening, everyone. russian president vladimir putin putting his military on high alert, ordering up to 150,000 russian troops stationed along the ukrainian border into a russia calls battle rea drills. consisting of 41 warships, two smarine 10 guided missile ships. several anti-submarine warfare votes. the defense minister claimed the movement of those russian forces
10:01pm
is purely coincidence. insisting that the military movement and wargames were prscheduled. and obama responding. secretary of state john kerry warned russia that a military action in the ukraine wouldbe a grave mistake. >> russia needs to be careful in the judgments that it makes going forward here. we are not looking for confrontation. but we are making it lear that every country shod respect the territorial integrity here. the sovereignty of the ukraine, russia has said it will do that. and we think it's imortant that russia keeps its word. lou: the russia counterpar fireback. warng the west and in sourcing decisions upon the ukrainian government. >> t isangerous and counterproductive to try to force upon the ukraine the
10:02pm
choice that you are with us or aginst us. it has toe part of a global ropean family that is meaningful of the term. lou: the permian pill in slow region tthe opposing groups, and some cases people getting killed. twpeople were kied in the demonstrations and riots in more than 30 hospitalized. drawing the ukraine back into the russian sphere. and it's not lely gog to allow this to go without a fight. joining s is lieutenant colonel bill collins. it's good to have you with us. and as we were watching this unfold, we have secretary of
10:03pm
state john kerry making what i consider to be an unexpectedly severe and stern warning tt i not certain that he can back t. what is your reaction first, if we may. >> for some it's great to be with you. i appreciate being invited. i think that president vladimir putin has lahed off whatever secretary john kerry had to say. i don't think the russians think for one minute that this administration is going to do anything at all if they make a mo on the ukraine. having said that, i think that vladimir putin is a smart guy. he's not going to do anything i the short term it really damages his stading. he's riding the crest of a wave right now. there were no incidents. he is really he guy who is moving forwardith their nuclear weapons and everything is on his ride right now. and i don't think that he wants to damage that by using oars at this time, but heis an old kgb
10:04pm
operative and that i will take whatever time it takes in my judgment re-create what happened in georgia when back in 2000 a russian troops went into two of the provinces because ssians and their, at the russians were being treatened. lou: s setting the stage for precisely that with his words. i thought, fankly, his use of the expression of the global community, talking about the ukraine membership therein of the european community as if russia is the head of that particular tble. an artful language and tone and presidentlamir putin arully has not saida word even as president obama in the white housesecretary kerry are making some bellicose statements
10:05pm
that again, i am not certain that this president is prepared to act p. >> i don'tthink we can back ay of it up at all. i think at there is no military situation under which we wou probably use force. the vladimir putin doesn't want to damage the repution and anding that he has by introducing those forces. there's nothing wrong with having 150,000 troops on the border as a demonstration of force and a reminder to those in the ukraine who are paying attention, that in the past he has used force one he felt necessary. unfortunately over the long term we will see them divided into two distinct countries and regions and one of thembeing part of this and they are not ing to let that go way. the rest of the area that is down there, 60% or more. and then we will see the other attributes and all th people who are demonstrating to get the president out towards the eu.
10:06pm
lou: your son is serving a fifth ur in afghanistan. general martin ddmpsey they're makingsome exceptional remarks today talking about the importance of u.s. forces even as his commander in chief. think they're rea for this. is it not? >> yes, it is. i feel for all of those men and women over there that are still engaged in a fight and are living in this edge of uncertainty particularly with the possibily of afghan forces siding with t taliban and turning her people. these are difficult things to be named. difficult for the troops to be hearing this. i think hearing this. i could think at the end of the day there is a lot of talk in washington about when the new president gets to afghanistan we will bable to work stus reports and an agrment and
10:07pm
keep our security rangement going. i'm not sure that is what the white house wants. the president really wants to get all of our peopleout of afghanistan and i think that we are going to pay the penalty in the long run. lou: we thk you for being with us. tensions flaring the ukraine. president obama focusing on domestic politics and his agenda. the president going to a restored train depot in minnesota to ask coness for $300 billion to update the natios highways andbridges and rail systems and to make his case, well, he upped his 800 billion-dollar stimulus practice. >> it was renovated and expanded with the help of what we call competitive grants that we created as part of the recovery
10:08pm
act. also known as the stimulus which actually works. >> incredible. still campaigning for an approval on th simulus package and we are still waiting for that 5% unemployment rate that obama promised along wth the stimulus in e. and a new report shows the atf agents have lost track of guns over the past five years and apparently some leaving them in bathroom stalls, on top of cars, and engaged in a six-hour standoff outside an apartment complex that ended whn they learned one had been at home. we are coming right back. the tax man and ways and means

10:14pm
>> he has worked very diligently to put this together. we need to make sure that we have a competitive tax code. lou: you guys really want to be on record wh this important midterm election calling for the deductibility and dectibles and i mean this is toxic stuff but he has put out there.
10:15pm
>> everyone knows that it s exactly as he has said and that requires a debte that ill have to go across the country. everyone knows that weneed tax reform and that certainly is hs way to start the debate. >> i think i might agree with you more if i would've had the experience of lower taxes as well as disapinting jobs growth. >> regardless your opinion, our tax code is abysmal and we need to start having a debte.
10:16pm
u: you've done not for five yea. the administration has no proposal. lou: i have as much hesitation with the use of the word reform. lou: let me talk about the debate and the discussion. does the republican party really want to eliminatdeductibility on mortgage interest to
10:17pm
illuminate this ontate and local income taxes which will affect all folks out there paying tax is common not just higher income earnings? and this is a time that we need to be cutting. >> you can't have a proposal and i do think it is. i believe you believe tha. but we have to have this discussion. lou: i appreciate your issue, but it's part of this and if you persist in this, you're going to blow a good opportunity come november. that is just one journalist's
10:18pm
opinion. >> this is an important debate. i think that therere lots of issues that are important. let's start wwth the debt. let's start with the incredible deficit and the size of government. >> we have a tax problem and a spendi problem. and it basically came to a grounding al. lou: what are you going to do about lois lerr? dirty have the attorney general in contempt. what are you going to do a former senior irs offcial?
10:19pm
he's basically told you guys to buzz off. i have a bill, hrr 1950 that iminalizes this action. lou: retroactively? >> the questio is what are you going to do about lois lerner who has told you guys to buzz off. >> we are going to make certain that there are two aspects of the story are told. hold people accountable and find out who did this. and you move forward with the legislation that holds people accountable if it haapens again.
10:20pm
and i think the american people are shocked at what has occurred at the irs that the administration is doing nothing and we are going to work diligentlto hold these people accountable to make re this doesn't happen again. lou: no one is a bbgger fan of darrell issa than i am. and i think you know that. you and your committee have done brilliant work. i do think that you ruthe risk again of being rendered impotent if you hadn't gotn an approach here with lois lerner and we will pass some legislation later. and at some point it seems to me to have a strategy thatis effective in exerting its well or quit looking badly.
10:21pm
>> in order to do an investigation you have to make certain that you are continuing at your getting all of the information. but it's not s happening within your news cycle. there are other people that were involved. lou: are you suggesting that it has ran ot of sync? >> we knew that there had been a much larger involvement on the irs making certain that we find out who these people are. and we are tracking ts down holdg thse people accountable. both investigative and enforcement agency, is wrong and are going to continue to work on. lou: that's great if you continue that investigation. what are you going too about it? a witness that you had subpoenaed and telling you to buzz off area.
10:22pm
>> i think you guys have heard from him before. as you know. we are continuing with e investigation to find out what other information we have this was orchestrated and wys to compel the testimony. see what. lou: she is seeking immunity. uld you entertain that idea where maxima gasoline on. she's violating the constitutional rights and i dot think anyone should receive immunity w parof that scheme to tell the story of how we didit. we ill find the ople and hold them accountable and whether this president likes it or not. lou: i couldn't agree with yoo more. the question is at what point is there a result. at what point is there a productive and constructive result that is in the interest
10:23pm
of those values and the constitution. >> you can't just quit. you can't just say that we have the answer yet. the administration s not been cooperating. we have been subpoenaing the irs and working on this process and people who testified were getting to t bottom of this. because the president knows that they might quit. lou: one last quetion. i wanted to talk about what are you going to do about the budge cuts for the military? >> this is somhing that is really disturbing. i oppose sequestratio part of the cuts are part of the tenure program. the dod looks out for the uncertainty of the pree to be sequestered and they're looking how to take these cuts in spending drops.
10:24pm
and this is a area that goes right to the heartf our nationals. and we will not only have a week and natural securityut a military that would not be capable to withstand to our adversary. lou: we agree that the cuts are draconian and absolute disaster for the national security. tonight we are startin right now. as you know every year for the mitary to unction we have tw have authorization bills and the funding bills. those are the bis that we are working on right now. we will work through it and are things th need to be reduction and we will take a look at those also congressman mike turner.

10:29pm
>> the housing recession retracted and we will not recover in a few years. but it will be a lon recovery process. the example is the numr today. nobody would have predicted that in fact, there would have predicted the opposite. background in economics, environment, whet her the magistrates contributing to a lower forecast. it caught everyo off guard to% year over year on new home sales. existing homes is a different category. we had a great year. i appreciate the recognition. we are prepared for the continuation.
10:30pm
the existing home sales we only give drivers for the first quarter every subsequent quaer we don't live for the year. but based what we have seen how sales will be down in the range of three through 5%. there is a reason. the price will be up 13 or 15% on existing home sales. either bright or wrong sales volume growth, the pri is reacting to a the strong demand. manhattan has literally one month to drive prices. southern california we have weeks. the absence of the inventory is the single greatest concern as to the trend line for the recovery.

economy's best interest to have a discussion about falling back at a te. lou: bubbles of deductibility i find is to defi. >> the effect is four years d throw away brand equity it is punitive to the high income markets with the entire east coast if you take away that deductibility of local real-estate taxes that has a very damaging impact. >> we do know that both parties listen so there is some good judgment. we appreciate it. richard smith. of northern californi couple strike gold letter of the findg $10 billion
